Fukuoka is one of the most exciting places in Japan for tourists to visit for so many reasons. We have our own unique culture that is very different to other places like Tokyo or Kyoto. This uniquely Fukuokan spirit is infused in everything from our special food to specific celebrations that you will only be able to find in Fukuoka. Of course, there is also the friendliness of our people! Many of the unusual things to do in Fukuoka aren’t really that strange to us, but I think for outsiders they are probably very strange indeed. So for any visitor, it’s fun to explore Fukuoka off the beaten path and get some know some of our special traditions. These are some of the weird things to do in Fukuoka that you should definitely try to experience on your visit. A weird and wonderful mix of food, daytime activities, and a couple of things from the famous Fukuoka nightlife that might just make your visit.
